We've just booked almost all of our fights for our 40th anniversary trip to Sicily in May. First, thank you all for your answers to my initial questions about which airlines to take. We finally opted for United/Lufthansa because we could use FF miles for one ticket. We now have an open jaw ticket for DC>Frankfurt>Palermo, then return Rome>Frankfurt>DC.
So, given that we will be arriving at Palermo Airport after an all-night flight but would like to avoid going into Palermo on this trip, can you suggest anywhere we could drive to and stay in the first night? It should be someplace not too far away since we will be jet-lagged and, of course, offer parking. We want to revisit Cefalu. Is that too far or challenging of a drive? Or should we stick closer to Palermo that first night and go to Cefalu the next day?
Thanks, Vagabond, Biondi, et al.
